Spring Break Externship Program

Yuyan Zhang – February 19th, 2017

The Externship program through the Center for Engineering Career Development at the University of Virginia is designed to match students with employers and present students the opportunity to experience a job setting outside of a typical internship arrangement. Externships are typically unpaid and last for a few days. Often the externship will involve a student shadowing an employee of the company to learn more about a particular type of work or industry.  Participating in this program does not guarantee a paid internship or a full-time position.
